  • Su 27 B

The SU-27 is a super maneuverability fighter which achieves a speed of Mach 2.35 at M2 altitude

2,500 km/h (1,600 mph, 1,300 kn) / Mach 2.35 at altitude

  • J-20

The J-20 known as Mighty Dragon is the new development Chengdu Aerospace Corporation for the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF). With twin WS-10B engine allows it to achieve a speed of Mach 2+ which makes J-20 one of the fastest 5th generation fighter in the world

  • F-22 Raptor

Meanwhile the famous F-22 Raptor is also at a similar speed level

Despite being a dedicated air superiority fighter, the F-22 still does not need to compete with interceptor aircraft like the MiG-25. At high altitude, the F-22A has a top speed of 2335 km/h (1450 mph).

  • F-16D

The nature of the F-16’s role means it doesn’t necessarily need to be the fastest jet out there. The F-16D, at high altitude, can achieve a top speed of 2142 km/h (1330 mph).
